Long welcomes large order for Bombardier

Alliance East Belfast MP Naomi Long has welcomed the order for 30 C-series planes that has been secured by Bombardier with Porter Airlines which operates in North America. The wings of the C-series aircraft are built at its factory in East Belfast.

Naomi Long MP said:”This is further positive news for Bombardier and the workforce at its East Belfast factory. It is good for the economy, not just in East Belfast but in Northern Ireland. This order shows that Belfast can play a part in large international business deals.

“This is the latest in a number of large orders that have been secured by Bombardier in recent months, which is important in sustaining the long term future of their East Belfast site.

“It is an indication of the hard work of the Bombardier workers whose product is rightly viewed as being among the best in the world.

“Bombardier is one of the most respected firms in the Northern Irish economy. It is following in the tradition of other great industrial and manufacturing companies such as Harland and Wolff that put Northern Ireland on the world map. With this deal, it will continue Northern Ireland’s proud industrial heritage.”
